I'm one of those geeks who studied plate tectonics and planetary ecology in order to make my D&D worlds more realistic. I don't know if Dungeon Mastery qualifies as true artistry, but as a writer, a musician, and a lifetime DM, I find the absorption of my environment a critical key to inspiration. It's important to be open to everything... one of the most beautiful guitar pieces I ever wrote was inspired by a flock of birds, while one of my most moving rock tunes was one night in a little blues bar while I was waiting to hit the stage. Whether existing in the moment or expanding my visual vocabulary, it can sometimes be a little surreal. I suppose that's why I worked so hard to overcome my social anxiety issues when I was younger... I didn't want to lose the opportunity to experience new things.
